At The Clayroom, an evening spent decorating bisque pottery pieces can spark conversation and unleash each guest's inner artist. Inside the cozy white abode embellished with green shutters, visitors settle in with their selected pottery pieces—such as a coffee mug, a piggy bank, or a cereal bathtub—then brush on various paints to create their own inimitable pieces of art. In addition to date night and ladies’ night, the DIY studio plays host to birthday parties, bridal showers, and corporate events.
Board-certified physicians Stephen M. Rouse, M.D., F.A.C.S., Jerilyn S. Allen, M.D., and William T. Culviner, M.D., F.A.C.S. work together to perform safe, advanced cosmetic procedures at The Center for Facial Cosmetics. With years of training and experience backing them up, they guide customers through personal consultations that help them create individually tailored treatment plans. They can also prescribe skincare regimens using Obagi products that can correct unhealthy skin functions instead of simply treating ailments. In seeking out natural beauty looks, the trio performs noninvasive treatments such as chemical peels and hair removal. Also available from the team are non-surgical treatments including Botox, Juvederm, and Restylane, and surgical treatments including rhinoplasty, face lifts, and neck lifts.
With more than 3,000 varicose vein procedures under his belt, Dr. Jeffrey Goldblatt, a diplomat of the American Board of Surgeons, leads the staff at Shoreline Medical Spa in blotting out bodily imperfections with up-to-date technologies. Lasers play starring roles in several treatments, with the CoolLipo system breaking up and removing fat cells from necks and jowls, and elos technology precisely ousting visible veins and hair from all skin tones. The staff puts down the lasers to evict bodies of toxins with body wraps, smooth wrinkles with dermal fillers, and soothe complaining muscles with therapeutic strokes or compassionate back pats.
